My favorite was riven. I spent 20-30 minutes a day on that game for about a year:p I think that they really crafted this atmosphere with myst, perfected it in Riven, and then some 3rd- party developer comes along and ruins it.
OK, maybe not any third party developer. maybe the same one that made the wonderful Journeyman
series... but it felt more like a journeyman game than a myst game.
BTW, for any who have not played journeyman 3 but are into that sort of game, you must get it. It's kind of dated, but still excellent.
